(By Special Messenger to Yass.) Roberts' Station, Monday, 10 p.m RETREAT OF THE FORCES FROM BUR- BANGONG. I send you this hasty telegram to say that since last night the excitement here is intense. The mob at Tipperary Gully are arming to     a man.     The three men arrested were brought be- fore the Bench to-day, and committed for trial.   The forces have been under arms the last forty-eight hours. The casualties are greater than I sent you yesterday, but I cannot send you parti- culars. This " roll up ". being for no other purpose than revenge. The men com- mitted have been admitted t0 bail.

THE Published every Friday morning. FRTDiAX, AUGUST 23bd. 1S61. OUR REPRESENTATIVES. ^TiiBEE weeks ago we inserted amongst our local intelligence a paragraph to the effect that Mr. Fiveash, of Adelaide, was contemplating ^soliciting the votes and interest of the consti tuency, to support a presumed candidature for legislative honours. It appears we were mis ;informed: but nevertheless the publication of .the rumour has not been without a certain influence. Our worthy Speaker of the House 'of Assembly,' Mr. Hawker, has done us ..the : honor of addressing a communication, through 'our columns, to the constituency; and a very important communication it was, because it showed that though from his position as Speaker,-he could not take open part in de bate," still he was not unmindful of the local interests of those whom he represents, We have jiow received a note from Mr. Fiveash, requesting :us to contradict the rumour of his intention to come forward as a candidate.

SOUTH S*SA ISLANDS. MURDER; OF MISSIONARIES* The Rev.

The particulars are these: In consequence of the ni« asiesy which had been raging among ibe islands with fearful mortality, the natives of Errotuanga deter* mined to kill all the people on that Island, looking oif them as the cause of the disease. :,Mr. Gordon was aware that the natives in lendrd taking, life, but thought that a litt'e tiitte would clange their purpose. About no3ii on the 20th May, nine Btmkill natives, of whom the chief Lova was the leader, called at the mission house, and inquired for Mr, Gordon.

OUR PUBLIC POUND. [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 23 August 1861

OUR PUBLIC POUND. AMONG; the numerous absurdities that have long teen meekly submitted to at Mount Gambier is the situation of the Pound. Most of our readers are aware that the pound is ten miles from our township, or nine miles farther off than it ought to be; and it is not so much the distance that is bitterly complain cd of as the circumstance of its being located in a per- j feet wilderness, remot'e froin the outskirts ofeven the population. It is away from any. main road, and difficult of access to the majority of the people. It follows that instead of being a benefit to the public, the pound is in every re spect a grievance. Those whose cattle or horses are impounded, are subjected to the annoyance of having to go ten miles to release them ^ and, as in many instances, it is long l efore they get notice that their beasts are in the pound, Ihey are burdened with heavy ex pence?, besides the laboufQrad loss- of time in cirred in bringing themffroine, On the other i .. . ?

THE ENGLISH MAIL. (From ' Bell's Life * in Adelaide.) By the return of the Balcluiha, we have English dates to June 26. Lord Chancellor Campbell died suddenly v on' (he night of the 22nd, or the morning of 1 the 23rd June.

During '.he dinner and evening his lordship conversed with his friends and company as usual, and retired to his cham ber at about 11 o'clock at night. On entering his , room at 8 o'clock on the fol lowing morning, i he butler found his lord* jdtip.seated, undressed, in his chair, cold and lifeless.

PARLIAMENTARY VOTES. [Newspaper Article] — Border Watch — 23 August 1861

. PARLIAMENTARY VOTES./ THOUGH >ve are not ungrateful for tlie sums placcd on the Estimates to the c-edit of the South Eastern District, yet we must protest against the inaccuracy of .including the annual working expenses of Government in the grant oi £i.O,77Q,, allotted to this neighbourhood. ;Tl}e :public are easily misled in a matter of this kind ; and on look ing over the items the first impression is that the . above amount is entirely a fresh and unusual giant, and that the sums of £300 and £350 for the Police and Telegraph stations of Mount .Gambier are for the enlargement of the respective premises these departments ofthe public service. Not so, however. These sums have; been voted for some time liack for working expenses in the shape of official; salaries. But waiving the objection to including the salaries of the police force, which we admit, isfor the benefit of Mount Gambier exclusively, it is exceedingly unfair and absurd to put down the annual ex pense of the Telegr...
